Narrative:
Lost in the Irish sea 9/9/1969 somewhere en route between Liverpool and Belfast. No trace of the aircraft was ever found, apart from some wreckage washed up on a beach at Ramsey, Isle of Man, two days later. There were no survivors of the two persons on board (pilot and one passenger).

NOTE: The crash happened on 9/9/1969, and the wreckage was washed up two days later, on 11/9/1969. Over the years both dates have been quoted in various published sources.

Registration cancelled as "destroyed" 11/9/1969: however, this date was presumably applied retrospectively, some six months later, and was the one on which the CAA were notified of the loss. Presumably it was also the date when any hope of finding G-ARNV was formally abandoned. The CAA documentation states "destroyed 11/9/1969, notified 3/3/70"
